After revealing over the weekend that she had gotten engaged to boyfriend Zandy Reich, Lea Michele shared the details of his adorable proposal — including her super relatable reaction — in a new interview.
“I was so surprised, I kept saying, ‘Stop joking around, stop joking around!'” Michele said on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. “I keep thinking it’s borrowed and I have to give it back at some point.”
The Mayor actress first announced her engagement on Instagram, sharing the good news with a close-up shot of the gorgeous ring as she excitedly held her hand over her face. “Yes,” she wrote alongside a ring emoji. Reich designed the 4-carat ring himself with the help of Leor Yerushalmi and the Jewelers of Las Vegas.
Joining Michele on Watch What Happens Live was Bethenny Frankel, who shared that the engagement had taken place in the Hamptons.
Michele and AYR clothing president Reich have been linked since the summer of 2017 — right around the same time that the former Glee star publicly paid tribute to her late costar and then-boyfriend Cory Monteith on the fourth anniversary of his death, a gesture she makes every year on the date.
So far, the actress hasn’t revealed any details on when or where she and Reich plan to marry.
Congrats to the happy couple!
